FuseNet Experiments - Sofia University plasma experiments

Experiment: Sofia University plasma experiments

Location: Sofia University

Description: In 2010, Sofia University started a dedicated master programme called Fusion Science and Technology. The curriculum relies heavily on experimental work during which students can learn how to create plasma sources, how to measure plasma properties, and the applications where plasmas can be used.

Target group: Sofia University has a curriculum for Fusion Science and Technology Masters, and students can already use the experiments in their thesis work at the bachelor level. In complexity, the experiments reach from demonstration to building new plasma sources.
 
Use and access: The curriculum of the master programme Fusion Science and Technology includes two semesters of obligatory plasma diagnostics practica. Bachelor students can also take these courses voluntarily, and some experiments are even demonstrated for high school students during the “Open House Day” at the Faculty of Physics. Basic plasma experiments are complemented by three hands-on experiments for studying high-temperature plasmas on the Plasma Focus device. Use of these set-ups by external students can also be negotiated.
